October Club Q with June!

Hello Quick Quotes fans, June here today hosting the blog!

WOW! Check out this month's Club Q, the papers and colors are gorgeous!!! Plus all the chipboard pieces, brads and ribbon are included. Definitely one of my favorite releases! Here is another fun idea you can create with the October Page Layouts Club Q kit.


This kit is designed with a fall theme, but you can use it year round. As I LOVE these papers, I wanted to have them pop, so I added dark brown cardstock from my stash. Here is the step-by-step:
  • Trim orange pattern paper to 11.5" x 11.5", distress edges and ink with Mahogany PowderPuff Chalking Ink, and mat on brown cardstock.
  • Trim flower pattern paper to 9.25" x  10.5", distress edges and ink with Mahogany PowderPuff Chalking Ink, and mat on brown cardstock.
  • Edge pre-cut red pattern paper with Mahogany PowderPuff Chalking Ink, and mat on brown cardstock.
 
  • Ink blend a pattern onto the chipboard title with a stencil using Cool Gray PowderPuff Chalking Ink. (I used a brick stencil to mimic the stone structure in the photo.)
 
  • Add splatters using Mahogany PowderPuff Chalking Ink mixed with water.
 
  • Adhere photos, title, ribbon and red brads
  • Color chipboard leaves with Cactus, Barn Board and Orange Slice PowderPuff Chalking Inks and die cut branches for the inside paper piece of the green frame. Then adhere.
 
  • Edge pre-cut green frame with Mahogany PowderPuff Chalking Ink, add journaling and orange brads. Tuck behind photo.

Precious Memories with Rebecca

Happy Fall, Y'all! It's Rebecca hosting the blog post today.

Fall memories in Indiana for me always include raking a pile of leaves and jumping in them. One fall day, I was lucky to catch my son and his dog, Lily, frolicking in the pile. This is such a special photo because Lily died 2 years ago at age ten.
 
"Precious Memories"
 
 
 
 
 
I die cut my frames and picture.



Die cut leaves with different colors of card stock. Ink them with PowderPuff Chalk Ink with several colors.

  • I cut the brick paper and adhered it roughly an inch and a half from the bottom
  • I cut the dark green paper at 1/4 inch by 12 and adhered it flush to the edge of the brick paper
  • Next, I add a 3/4 inch strip of the light blue paper under the dark green strip at the bottom

  • I cut a doily in half a placed as shown
  • Matted the vellum saying onto card stock
  • Add pearl accents to the corners
  • Attach with foam tape.

Add leaves in a cascading fashion.

  • Cut apart a pearl flourish and add to the bottom right corner and the top center
  • Add glue to open sections and add prills
 
I hope your fall season is full of memories to scrap!

Carving Pumpkins with Neva!

Hello Quick Quotes friends!  Neva here to share a memory from a few years back that features a few Halloween pumpkins!


There are several collections that feature orange, which I thought would be a good backdrop for my layout.
  • Two sheets of Secret Garden 104 with the orange flowered pattern is a great background.
  • Two sheets of Navigator 100 are trimmed to 7 1/2" x 9" and 7 1/2" x 12" and inked with Powder Puff Chalking Ink in Coal Miner.
  • The background is outlined with washi tape.
  • The title is die cut from black cardstock.

The two pumpkin borders are easily created using stamps and ink on Navigator 100.
  • Two sections are trimmed to 9" x 2" and 2" x 12".
  • The pumpkin images are first stamped in Coal Miner PowderPuff Chalk Ink.
  • A brush tip applicator is used to color the pumpkins with Biscotti PowderPuff Chalk on the stems and Rusty Nail on the pumpkins.  I like how this particular stamp set let me mix and match.
  • Both sections are backed with Navigator 104 trimmed to 7" x 2 5/8" and 2 5/8" x 12". 
  • All the sections are edged in Coal Miner PowderPuff Chalk Ink

This quote from Farmhouse 500 is not only orange, but is also fun to use!
  • The quote is trimmed, then inked with Coal Miner PowderPuff Chalk Ink.
  • Navigator 104 backs the quote.
  • Washi tape ribbons are created by layering washi tape on both sides of white cardstock.  
  • The "ribbons" are trimmed, folded, and adhered to the back of the sentiment.

Tractor Love with Connie!

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using the Secret Garden Collection by Quick Quotes. 

The collection is full of bright and colorful paper designs, some bold and some soft. I like the combination of both in a collection.

The photos are about a 3"x 3". You can collage them on a 8" x 10" sheet of Canon Pro Platinum and print them out. I used my Canon iP8720 printer for this.

The embellishments are created using stamps and PowderPuff Chalk Ink.


  • I stamped the images, on white cardstock, 
  • Then, using a Q-tip, colored in the images with PowderPuff Chalk inks. 
  • Trim each image out and they are ready to add to your scrapbook page.

  • Layer papers in the center of your page, add the photos and then decorate with the stamped images.
  • Title your page. 
  • The letter stickers are colored with PowderPuff Chalk inks. 
  • Makes it so easy to customize for the exact color you need for your title.

Happy Monday everyone. Dorlene here to share a layout I created using the Far and Away collection.

My mom, sister and I went on a road trip to Tucson, Arizona earlier this year and I wanted to showcase the difference in the landscape between the two states...from California poppies to Arizona Saguaros...both beautiful!


The first thing I did was sort through the Far and Away papers to select a base page. Then I cut down a piece of the border strip paper to create a large bottom border. I love using these multiple border strip sheets since they give the look of multiple layers without all the cutting and extra work.


Each piece of paper was inked around the edges with either Deep Sea, Bermuda or Tropical Punch PowderPuff Chalk Inks.


The chipboard words were part of an earlier Club Q kit and fit perfectly with this layout. I inked "life" and "good" in Deep Sea and "is" with Bermuda.

This was a pretty simple layout, so to add some pizzazz, I used a splatter background stamp with Bermuda PowderPuff Chalk Ink and other travel/adventure stamps with Tropical Punch and Sandy Shore PowderPuff Chalk Ink.





It was a great trip with two of my favorite ladies!

Happy Friday Quick Quotes readers, Louise here to host the blog.

Today is the first Friday of October which means it's time to reveal our new challenge...

Create a Geometric Design!
(Use Triangles, Circles, Rectangles, Squares, Etc.)

Today happens to be my son's 17th birthday which means that by the time you read this, he either will or won't have passed his driving test. I made him this card which has nothing to do with cars in case he doesn't pass. I used masculine colors and a geometric design based on triangles.


Before making the geometric design on the background, I started with a piece of Spring Showers 102 which I cut to the size of my card base. To add the design:
  • I used removable tape to hold the stencil in place while I applied PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Navy using my ink blending tool.
  • Next I rotated the stencil, taped it to other side and applied the ink in the same manner.

Here you can see the background of the card with the geometric triangle pattern:


I added the red triangles cut from the Secret Garden 103 paper and the sentiments from the Earth Wind Fire 500 paper. 

To make the arrow, I used my ink blending tool to apply PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Navy to a scrap of white cardstick. I cut the arrow using a metal die and then cut it in half. I applied more Navy ink directly to the edges and adhered the arrow as you can see above, 

All edges were inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Navy.

Adventure Canvas with Alicia!

Hello, Alicia with an off the page creation today!  

My son recently returned from an epic trip to Europe. I wanted to make him a keepsake to hang on the wall of his new apartment.  I also wanted to keep the project masculine while documenting his travels.



  1. Choose background paper
  2. Choose coordinating PowderPuff Chalk Ink(s) and ink edges of canvas and paper
  3. Adhere paper, I used a glossy medium
  4. Adhere photos and embellishments also inking their edges


I layered some colored texture paste next using a stencil.  To finish the project I inked and added paper, plastic and metal embellishments.

Oh Baby with Rebecca!

Hello, everyone! It's Rebecca here today with the blog post. 

As the baby of 12 children, I have lots of nieces and nephews as well as great-nieces and nephews! I try to scrap a layout for their albums that is special and unique. Today I share with you a layout for my great-niece, Rylie Paige.

"Welcome Baby Girl"



I cut three strips of paper 3 x 12 and inked the edges of each.


Next, I matted all of my photos.


I then die cut several flowers and flourishes. 


After attaching the two strips horizontally at the bottom of both pages, I glued the third strip vertically along the right side of the layout.

I added a doily from my stash and attached a phrase from the cardstock phrases sheet.

Finally, I cascaded the remaining flourishes and flowers and added the title.

This layout will make a great addition to my great-niece's baby album. I hope I inspired you to get scrapping today! Thanks for stopping by the blog today.

New Glasses with Neva!

Welcome Quick Quotes fans to the first day of October!

Neva here to share with you a layout about my son and his first pair of glasses. Not always a momentous occasion but being able to see well is a good thing! 

I combined papers and sayings from several collections to create this page.  I only had one sheet of Harmony 104 left in my stash so I designed the page to maximize the patterns on both sides.


  • The background is Spring Showers 103.
  • The section across the middle of the layout is Harmony 104, it was the best color match to my son's shirt.  It is trimmed to 6" x 12", then the diagonal is trimmed down 1 1/2" on both edges.
  • The edges are inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Blue Moon.

  • Two pieces are trimmed to 1 1/2" x 4 3/4" from Navigator 103 
  • The edges are inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Rusty Nail.  
  • The photo is adhered to the diagonal strip.
  • The two pieces of Navigator are adhered behind the photo and the diagonal strip.  Looks like the entire photo is matted doesn't it?
  • The reverse side of Harmony 104 is trimmed to 2" x 6".
  • The edges are inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Blue Moon.
  • The page is laid out to determine the placing of the sections.  
  • Use a straight edge like a ruler to line up the sections to create the illusion of a 7 3/4" x 6" piece of cardstock.  
  • The diagonal section is adhered over the top.   
  • Three sentiments are trimmed from Farmhouse 500 and inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Blue Moon.
  • Two sections are backed with Navigator 103 and inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Rusty Nail.
  • The remaining saying is backed with Harmony 104 and inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Blue Moon.
  • I love this saying from Farmhouse 500, which is inked using PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Blue Moon.
  • It is backed with  Navigator 103 and inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Rusty Nail.
  • The title is die cut from Navigator 103 and inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Rusty Nail.  I used a brush tip applicator to get in the tight corners of the letters.
  • The journal block is stamped in PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Rusty Nail.  It is edged with PowderPuff Chalk Ink Blue Moon.
  • It is then backed with Harmony 104 and inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Blue Moon.
My son enjoys looking at his layouts and declared this one to be fantastic!  I enjoy documenting times like these and little moments in life, don't you?
